An Academic Publisher
Open Journal of Ecology
SCIRP is committed to maintaining high standards through a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies. Any infringements of professional ethical codes, such as plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, bogus claims of authorship, should be taken very seriously by the editors with zero tolerance.
An Initial Plagiarism Check is carried out for every manuscript submitted to OJE. The check starts with a standardized Google search. In addition, the online tool Open Access Plagiarism Search (OAPS) is used. A Detailed Plagiarism Check is performed if deemed necessary.
SCIRP follows the Code of Conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and follows the COPE Flowcharts for Resolving Cases of Suspected Misconduct.
The submitted manuscript should not have been previously published in any form and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Open Journal of Ecology is an Open Access journal accessible for free on the Internet. At Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP), we guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to buy a subscription or pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of journal. There is hence no income at SCIRP that comes from selling any forms of subscriptions to this electronic version of journal or from pay-per-view fees. In order to cover the costs induced by editorial procedures, routine operation of the journals, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, and the provision and maintenance of a publication infrastructure, the journal charges article processing fee that can normally be defrayed by the author's institution or research funds.

Publication Fee Assistance to Authors from Low Income Countries
To minimize publication barriers,
SCIRP offers 20% discount off the regular article processing charges for the
authors from low income countries on this list. Very rarely, APCs for these authors may even be waived in case of a manuscript of exceptional quality combined with author's hardship. In all cases, the acceptance
of manuscripts for publication is decided on the sole basis of quality of
scholarship and editorial criteria.
